Training Seminars and Snake Avoidance

In the Spring and Fall we offer snake avoidance clinics around the U.S.  Our snake avoidance clinics are second to none, they work!  We have been holding them for over 20 years now and have had unparalleled success.

We also offer one and two day training clinics, both for training hunting and field trial dogs.  We also offer handling training for  field trials.

So contact us now and book a clinic for your club, hunting preserve or local area.  All clinics must be booked six months in advance.

Photos of clinics, both training and snake clinics coming soon!



Training PhotoHere at Rugerheim we offer year round training.  We specialize in "performance dogs", but we also train that special hunting or hunt test dog.  Due to time constraints we only compete in American Field and AKC field trials, but we also enjoy training AKC hunting test dogs. 

We ONLY train Master Level dogs.  Being an avid hunter and field trailer all of my life, my record speaks for itself.  In this time I have finished over 100 field champions.  I have placed or taken runner up in over 40 hour championships.  I have trained and/or finished over 20 AKC Master Hunters.

Our rates for 2011 are $500.00 /month per dog trained.  We charge a $60.00 handling fee and entry fees for local Field Trials.  Championships and Nationals fees are allocated according to the number of dogs we take to that event.
